Summer Fall in the Park

The Friends of Congress Square Park are pleased to announce that they are collaborating with SPACE gallery to coordinate a series of events to occur in Congress Square Park from April 28 through August 31.  This exciting summer long event series will include a variety of community activities such as dance performances, art interventions, live music and community gatherings.The group raised private funds to cover the costs of the events and to pay for important amenities for the park, such as movable tables and chairs and free public wifi.

Due to the incredible success of this summer’s events in the park we have scheduled more exciting shows through October!

Please check back regularly as we update our Events Page.


A future vision of Congress Square Park will include imagining all the different things that can happen here as our flagship downtown park. We look forward to working with the city to evaluate and decide what’s best for the future of this vital public space. It’s time to step beyond accepting the one bad idea that’s being forced upon us.
